Patty's Zesty Fantasy Artwww.ArtPal.com/patriciaanaconch
Patricia was born in USA but now lives in Australia. For most of her working life, she has worked as a psychologist and social educator. She is now retired from her academic career. When her mum became ill with breast cancer, Patricia began making humourous doodles, to make her mum laugh again. After her mum passed, Patrica then cultivated her newly found talent in abstract art, containing an intricate array of geometric shapes, doodles, squiggles, and distinct lines. Also, she has a flair for creating a story within the animals, faces, birds, and flowers she draws. Patrica's wholistic art captures an eclectic collection of abstract and architectural drawings, printmaking and mixed media.
